1 Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
2 When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
Psl. 75 (Old Testament)
6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
8 For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
Prayer: Thank You Lord that there is forgiveness and redemption with you. Thank You Lord that you provided the Way in The Lord Jesus Christ in whom we live, move and have our being. We ask you Lord to give us the grace to live righteously, obeying your commands, walking by faith. We honor you and thank you, Father that promotion doesn't come from the east or from the west, but promotion comes from you! The power of promotion and demotion is in Your Hand. Be glorified O Lord Jesus in our lives in Jesus' Name. Amen
